How we manage our family finances is always an important issue, but is particularly topical given the West's financial crisis. As Christians, our lives should demonstrate different values from those of the world around us, so what should our financial priorities be? How should we plan financially for the future? Should we ever get into debt? In this thoroughly practical book designed for the layperson, John Temple describes the secular economic order of the Western world and then establishes biblical principles of home finance.
